In the past, youth generally tended to rely on the advice, wisdom, and judgement of their elders. Today, exposure to outside Nagaland in search of education and job opportunities has a major influence on their lifestyles, and significant section of Naga youth is becoming estranged and alienated from the Naga culture among migrant Naga youth. In the present work, the author has intended to study fidelity to Naga culture among the youth staying outside Nagaland in different cities in India, (Kolkata, Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad, Pune, Chennai, and Kochi) compared to the youth residing in Nagaland. The transitional influences have brought a totally new outlook in the way youth look at life. This highlights the need of Pastoral care and counselling in the context, where the Naga youths may be helped to improve their coping ability to Naga culture and look for ways to make life interesting and befitting to the change of time.
